Snap counts: Defense
Now we move on to the snap counts on the defensive side of the ball.
-The Titans defense was on the field for a ridiculous 97 snaps, the most this defense has seen all season long. Kevin Byard, Logan Ryan and Kenny Vaccaro played every single one of them. That’s just insane when you consider all the effort it takes to stop an offense like the Ravens’. The previous season-high for defensive snaps was 85 back in Week 12 against the Jaguars.
-In the absence of Jayon Brown, the Titans went with a nice mix of rookie and veteran, as Wesley Woodyard and David Long, who temporarily left the game with an injury, were separated by just one snap. Long in particular played a great game and was all over the field on Saturday night, finishing tied for the third-most tackles on the team. Woodyard had the fourth-most.
–Derick Roberson was more involved in this game than he has been in any other this season. He played a season-high 34 snaps (his previous high was 16 in Week 17) and finished with one tackle. That’s showing a lot of faith in the UDFA out of Sam Houston State.
